SkinPen

As we age, collagen and elastin break down, affecting our skin’s texture and shine. SkinPen is your solution to jumpstarting collagen and elastin production so you can enjoy firmer, smoother skin.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

At Gayoso Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we understand the importance of achieving and maintaining beautiful, healthy skin. Aging is a natural process that affects the architecture of our skin, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, but there’s a way to support and maintain our skin’s tone and texture. Our SkinPen procedure harnesses the power of your body’s natural healing response to unveil firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin. It’s beneficial for all skin types and ages, and it could be the right tool to help you achieve better, brighter skin.

SkinPen is the only FDA-cleared medical-grade microneedling device designed for professional use and professional results. Our SkinPen procedure offers a non-surgical path to create a natural healthy glow by effectively breaking down damaged tissues, increasing healthy cell production, and remodeling the injured tissue. The innovative procedure uses microneedling to stimulate collagen production for smoother, plumper skin. It features a sterile, disposable needle cartridge that can be adjusted to your preferred treatment intensity and depth. This minimally invasive procedure is performed by our skilled and certified providers, who will tailor the treatment to your unique needs and aesthetic goals.

The Body’s Natural Healing Process

Your body’s natural healing process is a remarkable mechanism, designed to protect your skin and keep it healthy. It continually works to protect your skin by shedding old skin cells and revealing newer, healthier layers. As you age, this process naturally slows down, causing your skin to become dull and less able to bounce back from daily stressors. That is because your body is producing less collagen and elastin than it used to. These vital proteins provide support and elasticity for your skin’s architecture, making it firm and adaptable. When your skin experiences injury, your body’s natural healing response kicks in, restimulating collagen and elastin production. The result? Thicker, healthier, and stronger skin.

How SkinPen Boosts Your Collagen

SkinPen harnesses the power of your natural healing process to encourage brighter, tighter skin through three straightforward steps. First, it induces inflammation by penetrating the skin’s surface with microneedles. This triggers a natural immune response, increasing blood flow and prompting the creation of new tissue. During the second stage, a new network of blood vessels forms, this is known as proliferation. Lastly, new dermal tissues develop that are rich in collagen and elastin proteins, significantly improving skin quality. By creating a series of controlled wounds, SkinPen prompts your skin’s natural healing process to naturally improve tone and texture for long-lasting results. The outcome is skin that looks smoother, radiant, and more youthful.

Your SkinPen Consultation

Your SkinPen Consultation

Before you receive your SkinPen procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced providers. During the consultation, your provider will examine your skin and discuss your goals and expectations. To ensure your safety, we’ll review your health history, current medications, and previous procedures. It’s essential to be open and honest about your health and any concerns you may have. This information allows us to customize your SkinPen procedure to meet your unique needs and address your specific skin concerns.

The SkinPen Procedure

The SkinPen procedure is designed to effectively and efficiently rejuvenate your skin for a long-lasting glow. It typically takes between 20 to 40 minutes to complete, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. During the SkinPen procedure, your skin is numbed and sanitized, and the sterile tip of the SkinPen device is gently moved across your skin. This creates millions of microchannels, effectively breaking down the tissue and remodeling it for an improved and lifted appearance. Some patients may experience minor sensitivity similar to a sunburn following the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated.

We offer several ways to enhance this treatment, which include the application of Exosomes, PRX, or Platelet Rich Plasma. To determine which of these enhancements might be right for you, we encourage you to discuss these options with your provider during your consultation.

Discussing the Risks

With every procedure we offer, your safety is our top priority. We take every precaution to ensure you have a safe and comfortable procedure. During your consultation, we’ll discuss potential risks and concerns related to the SkinPen. We aim to provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision about your treatment. In the hands of our licensed provider, microneedling with SkinPen is a safe and effective procedure that can help you achieve better, brighter skin.

Your SkinPen Recovery

Recovery after a SkinPen procedure involves very little downtime. Since your treatment is customized to you, the length of your recovery will depend on the depth and intensity of your procedure. You will also receive post-care instructions after the procedure, which we strongly advise you to follow. The day of or the following day, you may experience mild redness and swelling, but it should go away within two to three days. Bruising is rare, but to ensure you don’t have any, your provider might recommend that you avoid blood thinners like aspirin or similar over-the-counter medications.

How to Maintain Your Results

The more aggressive your treatment, the better the results. The number of treatments you need will depend on your individual goals and your provider’s recommendations. After three to seven days, you should see the full results of your SkinPen procedure. During this time, it is essential to be cautious about sun exposure. We recommend applying sunscreen daily to protect your skin and maintain the results. To maximize the effect of your SkinPen procedure, we suggest following a dedicated skincare routine and maintaining proper hydration. With the right care, you can enjoy smoother, plumper skin for up to four to six weeks before your next treatment.
